How can I set up Lazy Load on my website?

Are you trying to reduce the load time of your websites? This guide will help out achieve that but first, let’s find out what Lazy Load actually is.

What is Lazy Load and how does my website benefit from it?

Having Lazy Load active will increase the performance of your websites and that’s due to the fact that your browser will only show the images you are consuming at that time. In other words, Lazy Load prevents the loading of the content you’re currently not viewing unless you scroll down further.

The length of a specific page is also an important aspect when it comes to loading times. Click here to learn more on that topic.

How can I activate Lazy Load?

To do that, an optimization plugin is required. You can choose from the following options that should do a great job handling Lazy Load (tested by our Optimization team):

  • Autoptimize – generally a great optimization plugin.
  • EWW Image Optimizer – if you’re already using the plugin for optimizing and rescaling website images.
  • LiteSpeed Cache – caching plugin that also allows the Lazy Load option.

Keep in mind that after enabling Lazy Load, clearing your website’s cache along with our XDN cache (if active) is highly recommended.
Here’s how to clear the XDN cache.
• Clearing the website’s cache would depend on the caching plugin that you’re using. Usually, the button that you’re looking for is located on the top bar of the wp-admin area, allowing you to clear the website’s cache with a single click from a drop-down menu.
